There are many different ways in which you can be greener in the kitchen, from composting food leftovers to using eco-friendly cleaning products, but one thing you may not have considered is how investing in the Alexandria 4-in-1 Instant Hot Tap can also help your home to be more sustainable.

Here are just some of the many benefits on offer:

Never waste water

The Alexandria 4-in-1 Instant Hot Water Tap is designed to help minimise water wastage. When using a standard kettle, it is very easy to overfill or double boil, however with an Instant Hot Water Tap you only use the water you need, whether it is for a cup of tea or making your favourite pasta dish.  Being careful with your cuppa will not only save you water but will also help you cut costs off your energy bill.*

Save energy, save money

The kitchen is undoubtedly one of the most used rooms in the home and contributes significantly to energy usage. As such, it makes sense to focus on the kitchen when it comes to cutting back and saving money.   With utility bills on the rise there has been much media focus on rising costs for homeowners**.

The average 1.7L kettle uses around 6kw of power for a full kettle and is typically boiled five times a day, which equates to 30kw of energy per day costing roughly 12p.

In comparison, the Alexandria 4-in-1 Instant Hot Water Tap helps you save energy by using just 1.5w of energy to heat 3 litres of water. This means, when used on a daily basis, it could cost as little as 3p a day to operate – helping you to save up to £60 in energy bills each year!

Plastic bottle recycling

Reduce plastic waste

In the UK we throw away around 455,000 tonnes of plastic bottles every year – equivalent to around 9.1 billion bottles.***  Dispensing great-tasting cold filtered water at just the touch of a button, the Alexandria 4-in-1 Instant Hot Water Tap means you will no longer need to buy bottled water in single-use plastic - helping to effortlessly reduce your household plastic waste.   

IHWT filter changing

Environmentally friendly filters

The filters used in our hot taps are some of the most eco-friendly in the world.  They are made in the UK and 100% recyclable.  When the carbon filter has reached the end of its life you simply add it to your green compost waste and it will biodegrade.  If you prefer the ion filter option then return it to us in our pre-paid envelope and we can clean and recharge it allowing it to be used over and over again.
